Honeycomb Preview SDK Released
 
I just loaded it up in Eclipse and tinkered around in it in a bit. Pardon the weird res and being stuck in portrait mode, I didn't Google how to change to landscape until I had taken the screen caps. Using 1280x720 so the screen fits on my laptop's screen. Performance was naturally sluggish, I should really try running it on my desktop, this Core 2 Duo doesn't emulate ARM very well :lol:


Home screen, I added the widget from the next screen


You can setup all of your widgets and shortcuts on all of your home screens without all the hassle that Android currently has, they've simplified the process and made it a LOT more elegant.


The Settings app is extremely clean now, I really like what they've done.


And the browser is just damned sexy. Seriously love how it looks.

Overall, I'm really excited to try a Honeycomb tablet, this preview just reinforced that.

It's a known problem by Google (who, btw, make the suckiest emulator of all the major OS makers).

2.3 or 3.0 major versions, but specifically you'd have to research

Seems they're going to split phone and tablet from here on out, which is a good plan, IMO.

ASCI Blue Jan 27, 2011 08:25 AM

I can't argue that. In theory a tablet might in the near future pack more ponies in the body than a phone can. I did see shortly after I made my post that 3.0 is coming to phones (eventually) and the UI looks very similar to what you posted just more phone-like.

Um... only for starters. The lead Android Designer has said it's also for phones. But no indication when that will be, or if that'd be 3.x.
